A standard dental bridge is designed to replace single or multiple consecutive teeth. This restoration consists of multiple crowns fused together to create one larger tooth replacement that fits over existing teeth. After carefully modifying teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile, the bridge is placed on top, bringing your smile back and preventing neighboring teeth from shifting out of place. With regular at-home care, your bridge can last anywhere between 10 and 15 years.
Dental Implant-Supported Dentures
If you’re tired of your current traditional denture or don’t want one to replace your teeth to begin with, an implant denture can be a feasible solution if you have enough healthy bone tissue. We offer two types of implant dentures: locator-retained and bar-retained. Denture locator implants make use of dental implants that are strategically placed throughout the jaw and connect to an overdenture through individual sockets to keep it secured. In contrast, bar dentures make use of a full metal bar that attaches to the implants directly as well as holds a removable overdenture.
Considered to be the new gold standard of tooth replacement by many dentists, dental implants work to replace the entire structure of teeth by bringing back the root as well as the crown. Titanium posts are placed inside of the jaw so it can integrate with your existing gum and bone tissue. Not only does this method address many common issues related to tooth loss, but your replacement can last for the rest of your life when properly cared for daily.
